    Foxclone creating a folder

    Great. Thanks for that. I too like to test everything (and I mean everything) to make sure that stuff actually works. Will let you know how I get on with Foxclone.:cool:

    Foxclone creating a folder

    G'day Condo. Thanks for that. Yes, I just finally worked out that I need to open the partition as root then I right clicked and made a folder. So far so good. Would be nice to do this in foxclone and maybe Bob will be able to help. Do you have a particular preference for Rescuezilla? There are...

    Foxclone creating a folder

    I have posted below on the 'Linux Mint Forums' web page but haven't heard back. I have backed up a Foxclone image to my separate partition in my onboard drive on my laptop and before I did this I went through the Create Folder process as per the FoxcloneV50 manual (point 35 in the manual) but...

    Freefilesync for mint

    Greetings. Is there a particular version of Freefilesync best for Linux/LinuxMint? Download from the site is Download FreeFileSync 13.5 Linux I seem to remember in the distant past there was another version with a different extension for linux installations. Maybe I'm dreaming. Cheers

    Multiple Distros on one Internal SSD in my laptop

    Perfect explanation, Wiz. Even I can understand it. It's stopped raining after 2 months in Maleny so I'm off to mow the lawn.

    Multiple Distros on one Internal SSD in my laptop

    Thanks for that. I don't need any capability for gaming. I just want somewhere to park my work personal files, some images, etc separate from the Mint operating system so if there is a problem with Mint I will be able to still get at them and have the ability to back them up somewhere/somehow...

    Multiple Distros on one Internal SSD in my laptop

    Thanks Blunix. OK. I didn't know whether a virtual distro is basically the same as an actual distro installed. If so then I could one day in the future do my fiddling (meaning playing with, trying stuff, etc) Also maybe I am using the wrong terminology. I thought that /home meant a place where...

    Multiple Distros on one Internal SSD in my laptop

    Greetings Gurus. After much reading plus furiously watching youtube vids on Linux here is my master plan. I want to install Mint on my new internal 500gb SSD on my laptop. I understand GPart, how to partition, how to setup uefi partition, the Mint OS under /, and so forth. From advice on the...

    Linux Mint setup on my laptop

    Ah Ha. Yes, this clears up one of my previous posts asking whether you need separate partitions for each distro or you just stuff them onto a ssd. This basic fact is good to know. I have checked out GParted on my boot disk and just for fun I partitioned my external and separate SSD that contains...

    Linux Mint setup on my laptop

    No, that's ok. I just wondered if this is some sort of special thing called a EFI System Partition (ESP) - so much for me bragging I am a Windows guru. As I said, I can just make a separate Fat32 partition the size you mentioned and park it front or back. Yes?

    Linux Mint setup on my laptop

    Okaaay. You mention in point 1, 'Take a current Timeshift of your existing Minty (include home if not filled with huge amounts of data)'. In Windows, I have always had a separate data partition on a physically separate drive so if the Windows OS or the physical drive that has Windows on it...

    Linux Mint setup on my laptop

    Wow...I mean wow! 40 plus distros. When you have more than one distro surely you didn't partition your ssd 40 times. Um, You can see that I don't understand at all where distros store their stuff. I need to get my head out of Windows OS setups. How does a distro operate with 40 different...

    Linux Mint setup on my laptop

    Thanks Wiz. I will hold of 'till you get back to me. No rush. I have just bought a 500gb ssd to replace the one in the laptop so I am ready to go either way. Gosh, aren't ssds cheap nowadays. $149 is a bargain for a ssd with no moving parts I reckon. I got it locally so they needed to put their...

    Linux Mint setup on my laptop

    Thanks for your clear explanation APTI. Yes this whole cloning thing does have its place I am sure but for my specific purpose and my particular approach I reckon a new onboard SSD will be the go. Cheers John

Yes, I did spent quite some configuring Mint on the 500gb ssd but if needed I am ok with doing a completely...
